7:07 am
this tax rates going up. republicans, including lindsey graham, have talked about revenue. taxhe said i don't ever want to see tax rates go up. that's that's the key thing to watch. ortedjor reported, the president is saying tax rates must go up. we only way you're going to buy ans to get tans to get tax rates to go up would be to show some ewhere whereon somewhere where democrats would feel some pain thethat would be in the entitlement area. curity,sident doesn't want to ments social security and really republicansng to do something n ultimatws republicans to save ace in an ultimate deal where hey can say, look, this is what we got. we didn't just totally get rolled by the president. f front page of the wall street journal this morning suggests blet obama might be flexible on e topng those top rates, but goingnot going all the way back to clinton era rates, like 39% thataybe 37% or 38%. compromise be a sign of compromise. said, has always said -- the president has said rates must go up. up, much they go up, whether it's a combination of closing

7:09 am
dictiona she's a nominee kind of in waiting. this is the problem the president can't defend her as a nominee for a job he hasn't hasn't nominated her for. this is kind of a loose shirttail out there. she's going around the hill, talking to senators. meetings aren't going well. in n part because senators, if nothing else, are reserving their leverage for if she actually does become the t onnee, they'll have a process, hearings. they don't want to prejudge that process. pr pro process hasn't begun. so the president has to say these limited things. when he says only a limited thing about her success at the u.n., he is not defending her on t theuestion that's before him. i the white house is in a tricky spot here. of course, then hanging overall of this is republicans anger hey are note still not getting the questions answered on enghazi and feel that the onesrs they're getting are as 's whatal as the original ones in the heard. you.'s what's upsetting them in the first place. >> john dickerson, thank you.

in the weeks ahead i also look forward to sitting down with governor romney to talk about where we can work together to move this country forward. >> welcome back to cbs "this morning." three weeks after president obama made that victory speech he and mitt romney will meet at the white house today for a lunch. >> it's expected they will talk about some of the issues they
7:30 am
debated during the campaign, taxes, entitlements and the fiscal cliff. joining us now, stuart stevens governor romney's chief campaign strategist. he sparked controversy yesterday with an op-ed defending the republican candidate. good morning. talk about the op-ed in a moment but everything that i hear from the romney camp since the election is that everybody in the camp thought they were going to win until the voting took place. >> well, we were optimistic. you know, the numbers if you go back, you look at the public polls were tied. some of them had us ahead. some of them had the president a little bit ahead. usually in those situations incumbents get what they get in the tracking. there was reason to be optimistic. but we were always realistic. it was a tough fight from the very beginning. >> do you think the reason that mitt romney lost was the ideas that he laid out during the campaign or were you just out gunned on the ground game?
7:31 am
>> i certainly don't think it was the ideas. i think the ideas carried the day for us. and the success that we had, though it obviously wasn't enough to win the race was based on the candidate mitt romney and on his ideas. there were two very different campaigns run. it's fascinating to look at. when you listen to the obama campaign and let me be the first to say they ran a great campaign. it was a campaign they could have lost and they won and that's the definition of a great campaign in my book. they ran very state specific issues, less of a national campaign. that was not why governor romney was running. he wanted to talk about big national issues, debt, entitlement, the future of the country. he wanted to put big questions before the country. and he did that. and i think the comparison of those two was striking. it was striking in the debates.
7:32 am
>> why does that have to be mutually exclusive? >> it doesn't. >> you can have big ideas and do well on the ground game in each states. >> i don't have a dog in this fight but i'm baffled when people say they won at ground game. they turned out more voters four years ago than they did this time. i would give them credit for their message in those states rather than just their ground game. i think it's somewhat telling what the obama campaign did. >> let's talk about who voted. you made a point in the op-ed that romney won people who make more than $50,000. we have the governor speaking about the fab that the obama campaign paid its voters and certainly lower income voters. that seems to be a bit of sour grapes. >> i don't think that's what he was saying. i think he was saying there was an effort that the incumbent used as many other incumbents have used to reach out to
7:33 am
constituents. that's something we've seen in politics going back for a long time. they did it effectively. they had certain groups that they wanted to do well with and they did well with. we had certain groups we wanted to do well with and we would have done, would have won if we did better with them. >> this was a vote between the rich in america and those of the haves and have notes in your judgment? >> no. i don't think there were fundraising at anna's apartments and raising millions of dollars for barack obama. >> the editor of "vogue." >> or others, george clooney was supporting -- >> stu, you made the point in your "the washington post" article that mitt romney won every group of voters making over $50,000 a year and that he
7:34 am
did better than john mccain among white voters. but didn't you under estimate the size of the minority vote? 2004 in the bush campaign where there was a sharp divide between those who thought did a lobe they were able to turn out those that thought that the president had done a successful job. i think that they spoke, their messaging spoke to them, and i think that the images of the president in the storm were very helpful to them. it reminded them of what they liked about the president. they were successful at it. >> stuart, let me get in one
7:35 am
point here. so, if you had this election to do over, even though george bush would say i don't do do-overs -- if you had the election to do over, what is the one mistake that you as adviser to the candidate and the candidate made in this election? what might have made prromney president? >> it's a great question, a tough question. we talked about it a lot. i think we should have done a better job reaching out to women voters. the governor has a great record on women's issues. we should have done a better job articulating that record, and we should have done a better job reaching out to hispanic voters. we should have done it earlier and in a more effective way. and i think looking forward, those are questions for the party. i think we have a very good message there. we just have to do a better job with it. >> stuart stevens, thank you so much. >> thank you, sir. we're hearing strong words about another election into the baseball hall of fame. we'll show you why some with hall of fame's credentials may not get there. that's next on "cbs this

they didn't find anything wrong. by golly, they're not going to get my vote! we're going to fog them and keep them out. it really is ridiculous. it's ridiculous as marvin miller and curt flood not being in the hall of fame. that -- this is the greatest atrocity, i think, in the history of this voting for the baseball hall of fame, not just these two guys, but marvin miller and curt flood, beyond any reasonable doubt of decency belong. >> do you think there's a message at all that we send to our kids when we say, sure, they cheated, they used performance-enhancing drugs, and a lot of people knew about it and because there's lots of scoundrels in the past that we let in the hall of fame, we're going to continue that bad trend? >> i don't think it's a message. i think what we're saying is, number one, court of law, if you want to talk about messages, court of law, that's what we all believe in, the court let roger clemens off and they basically found all that barry bonds did
7:43 am
was obstruct justice. now, if we want to teach our kids, listen, this is what the court says, you may not like it. this is what the court of law says. and number one, you also tell them, you know what? these two guys, they weren't the only two people. if we want to talk about the word on the street, many, many, many people were doing this, the guys who were hitting, the guys who were pitching. and even despite that, these two people were the best in their position. >> let me make two points here. one, what about pete rose? >> no, because when he got into baseball, there was a huge sign in the clubhouse says "do not bet. do not bet," and he said you know what? i'm going to bet, okay? there was no sign for -- in fact, they were given the plegig the players amphetamines, charlie! they were giving them to him! they were giving them to them! >> i'm not for it, i'm just trying to get your opinion. [ laughter ] >> wait, wait, can i -- >> what? i do want to know one thing,
7:44 am
because it's important. marvin miller, make the case for him. >> he changed the game. he made it possible for players to get what they deserved and he took them off the plantation. and curt flood, he's great. he's the guy that had everything to lose, everything and had the guts and the courage to say this is not right, and people with guts and courage say this isn't right and i'm going to risk everything i've got to make it right. >> bottom line, do you think they'll get in. >> no. >> yeah. >> i think these guys who vote, i think they're going to send the message, they're going to

8:02 am
but no matter what they're really thinking, the winner and loser of any presidential election now routinely get together for at least a handshake, and sometimes a good deal more. it all began after the election of 1960, when president-elect john f. kennedy paid a call on richard nixon in florida. >> that '60 election was razor close, and kennedy barely won. and so, that moment when the two of them met, it kind of unified the country. >> reporter: but it hadn't always been that way. historians point out that franklin roosevelt never invited his predecessor, herbert hoover to the white house, and that fdr had harsh words for his last opponent. >> in 1944, he called dewey who he beat, an s.o.b. and didn't want to see his face. >> reporter: richard nixon met hubert humphrey after beating him in 1968 and offered him the job of u.n. ambassador, which he declined. bill clinton dropped in to see george h.w. bush after winning
8:03 am
the 1992 election, and you would have thought that they had always been the best of friends. >> very, very friendly and very helpful. >> reporter: one topic that never came up in today's meeting, the campaign. no wonder they had such a good time. but things don't always go that well. george w. bush's meeting with al gore in 2000 was notable only for its brevity. >> i think in general, they're very awkward, but that photo op tells the world, really, that america's back, operating as one united country. >> reporter: now, the white house won't say whether the president will ask romney's help on any particular issue, as he suggested he might on election night. and we won't know anything about the meeting except what they tell us, because the two men will be having lunch alone and there won't be a chance to ask because there's no press coverage. charlie, norah? >> bill plante, thank you. csu political director john dickerson is with us again. john, good morning. >> charlie. >> we had this conversation with stuart stevens about the republican campaign. what did you make of it?
8:04 am
>> well, it was -- i thought one of the most interesting things was when he talked about what groups he didn't do well with. he said women. every candidate's going to say that. but he talked about with hispanics, and this is kind of a flaw embedded in and a problem republicans are wrestling with right now, how to reach out to hispanic voters, and a lot of people think the original sin of the romney campaign was when governor romney moved to the right on immigration in order to forestall a threat from rick perry, the governor of texas. and romney talked about self-deportation and had a very hard line on immigration, and that that basically walled off hispanic voters from him. so, the question is, if that was forced on romney as a result of the gop primary process, is there something in that primary process, is there something about the gop base that's going to keep forcing candidates to that position? and how do they get to a new place? do they do it with new positions or do they do it by nominating a candidate like jeb bush, former
8:05 am
governor of florida, who has a better record with hispanic voters? >> you also heard him say that what obama did was a state-specific campaign. they were running a national campaign, which i do think speaks to what happened during this race, but should you be running a national campaign or a state-by-state campaign, given that it is the electoral college and not the popular vote that elects the president? >> well, you know, the obama campaign did both. i mean, tactically, they ran what they've said was basically like a dozen or so governors' races. so, they picked out those important swing states and they ran them on specific issues to the state and then also tactically, i mean, they knew which doors to knock on in such a precise fashion. but the president also talked about the big choice and constantly on the stump talked about the choice in this election, and that was because he didn't want it to be a referendum about his presidency. so, you have to do both, but your point is, of course, right. in the end, it's about those battleground states, and so you have to pay very, very close attention to the local, on-the-ground situation in those
8:06 am
states. >> let's talk about the lunch today quickly, because norah and i both were struck by the idea that richard nixon offered hubert humphrey the role of ambassador to the united nations. i mean, is it possible that, somehow, there is in this conversation the possibility of how romney could play a role, either using his influence, if he has some, or be in some position? >> well, it's a fascinating question, and we know that president obama has an affection for doris kearns goodwin's team of rivals, and he no longer has democratic rivals that he can pick from, so you know, he can now turn to governor romney. the question is what role would he play? he certainly really doesn't have a role to play in the immediate negotiations. he has no influence over house republicans, and that's where the game is, basically helping john boehner find the votes to get something through the house, but could he have a larger relationship with business or, you know on that question or

welcome back to cbs "this morning." one month ago today superstorm sandy slammed into the east coast, it killed at least 125
8:30 am

8:31 am
is being battered by strong storms and rising sea levels. threatening multimillion dollar homes. those same homes are blocking the natural replenishment of sand from the canyons above so with every wave and every tide the beach is being erased. much of broad beach sand has ended up here at zuma beach. this beach is owned by los angeles county and it doesn't plan to give the sand back. broad beach has broad posts. it's been home to hollywood's elite. steven spielberg, dustin hoffman and stallone. they taxed themselves an estimated $21 million so they can go shopping for sand. they tried manhattan beach 35 miles down the coast where they planned to dredge offshore. after all back in the 1920s manhattan beach sent its sand west to build hawaii's beach.
8:32 am
>> malibu tried to steal our sand and all the money in malibu and not by manhattan beach sand they can go the desert and get plenty of sand there. >> reporter: there are likely willing sellers in the mojave deserts. sand is now also a hot commodity on the east coast. hurricane sandy washed away entire beaches along the new jersey and new york shore line. after the storm we saw the damage firsthand on new jersey's long beach island. when hurricane sandy hit this island she plowed through sand dunes and the beach. filling almost all of the streets with mountains of sand. some of that will be used to restore beaches and dunes. yet there is now a debate as to how much of the shoreline can or should be rebuilt.
8:33 am
it's estimated to cost $8 million per mile. meanwhile, sea levels are expected to rise and storms intensify as the climate changes and further erodes the country's coasts. >> we're seeing it here. there's no denigh it any longer. >> reporter: jefferson wagner says there's a reason even broad beach money can't buy a solution to its sand problem. >> i think it's starting to finally sink in that it's not going to be an easy task. nobody's willing to give up this asset. this is why people come to the beach. >> reporter: a beach that's narrowed by the day. for "cbs this morning," ben tracy, malibu. >> i love being on the water and i love beaches. so this is a sad story. >> it is a sad story. certainly concerned about the people still struggling from sandy. speaking about people who are struggling, people are struggling without sleep and there is news this morning for millions of sleepy people. one-quarter of all americans say
8:34 am
they've taken sleep medication at some point in their lives. >> researchers say an experimental drug offers a promising new approach for treating insomnia. dr. michael bruce is a sleep expert. i want to talk about the new drug, but what is insomnia? >> it's complicated and not all insomnia is created equal. there's the i can't fall asleep, there's the i can't stay asleep, there's the i wake up too early. that's insomnia associated with pain and anxiety. there's all kinds of different types of insomnia. >> what does the drug do? which part of that insomnia? >> this new medication is very interesting. what it does is it works on a particular area of the brain. neurochemicals would come in and stimulate wakefulness and this drug block that is wakefulness. so it's a very different approach. we learned several years back that people with narcolepsy have less of these receptor sites. it's a new way of thinking about
8:35 am
people who have narcolepsy. >> they fall asleep everywhere. >> exactly. >> how would this new drug be different from drugs similar to ambi ambien? >> it's very, very different because it hits a completely different section of the brain. when you look at a medication like ambien, what that does is it hits a very specific receptor site. there are some subreceptor sites within that. this one goes to a completely different part and turns off the wake, doesn't try to turn on the sleep. very different idea. >> what does wine do regarding sleep? >> alcohol will make you -- >> nora made me ask you that. >> it will make you feel sleepy because it's a muscle relaxant and a respiratory depressant. but it makes you make up a lot easier throughout the night. if you want to have a glass of wine with dinner, that's fine.
